This stuff does not deal well with being exposed to raw flame, but it can last for a very long time over electric or charcoal flame, though it quickly degrades if places on the heating source while the kettle is empty.


That is very useful information and now I understand why they're not the same as my cast iron dutch oven.

This is my new tetsubin. It arrived one week ago from Japan and I have been using it every day. Now if I could only find something more graceful than an electric hot plate to heat it up...

Hey, I changed my setting and it lets me post from my phone!

Here she is then (photos from last week).

EDIT: the only reason I hardly post in the other picture threads is because of that problem -- now I'm gonna go wild and post all of my teaware!

How long do tetsubin last generally? Do they just rust out?
